Fantastic! The wait staff was extremely kind and courteous from the second we walked in. The pasta was some of the best pasta I've ever had in my life, and they had live music playing the whole time. The place was a really quaint and perfect place for a date night. I would highly recommend this to anyone 10x over.

Dinner at Giardinos this past Saturday night there were 4 of us and it was our first time dining here we all loved our entrees! I ordered the chicken cacciatore and it was probably the best I've ever had the service was on the ball and the prices were very reasonable the only negatives were the valet across the street was a pain in the pouring rain and the restaurant was very hot and uncomfortable inside but other than that we had a great meal

Haven’t been here fo years as it is not in my neighborhood, but wish it was. Had Chicken Scarpiaello Huge portion, great tasting and very reasonably priced. Baked flames were also terrific.

Very attentive host and staff. Food was great and not super expensive . A few things that was a little off was one of the waitresses kept coming to ask if we were done with the menus before we ordered because it seemed they didn’t have enough to give out .. and second that when you walk in there is a desk there but no host.. if someone didn’t tell us as they were leaving that you needed to go down the hall into the restaurant to be seated we would have just waited there. Very awkward set up and not very welcoming when you come in .

Generally good food. A little noisy with multiple parties usually going on the weekend. Service is inconsistent from visit to visit.

This is my husband and my "go to " Italian restaurant. Food is always delicious and the service is excellent. We've also had several parties over the years. I always receive compliments from my guests. Two weeks ago my husband and I celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary and did a vow renewal . The staff couldn't have been more attentive and as always the food was great!
